Description

HourlyNerd is a marketplace that connects businesses to MBA alumni and students for short-term business consulting. We're disrupting the 100-year old consulting industry and going after two massive markets -- SMBs and major enterprises. There are 28 million SMBs in the US alone, and all have the same problem -- they can't afford expensive consulting firms and don't know how to find high-quality freelance help. We're providing them access to the same people who work at McKinsey at a small fraction of the price. Major enterprises, including GE, Omaha Steaks, Au Bon Pain, CDW, and American Apparel, are already using HourlyNerd. The consulting industry in the US is over $17 billion, and these companies know that McKinsey, Bain and BCG are overcharging. HourlyNerd is the first service that provides them a fairly priced alternative.

Our investors include Highland Capital and Greylock partners, two of the top Venture Capital firms out there, as well as famed investor Mark Cuban. We're on a mission to build the absolute best team on the east coast, and are looking for talented, scrappy, fun, and competitive folks to get on board.

QA/Automation Engineers are expected to be full stack, having skills in figuring out how to test functionality, writing thoughtful manual and automated test cases, and excellent programming skills to implement automation.  The right individual will be expected to help set the vision for QA and Automation at HourlyNerd, as well and drive the execution of it.
